The Athens Writers Association hasn’t done many public events this year (we’ve all been busy writing!) but even introverts like a moment or two in the spotlight so… We will have an official table at the Lickskillet festival at Lyndon House in downtown Athens, GA. This event is FREE. We will have books for sell by Katherine Cerulean, Jennifer Innes, Elsa Russo, Rob White, Phyl Campbell, AWA collections, and more!
There will also be several OTHER booths run by AWA members —
- Par Ramsey will be debuting the newest book from the AWA offshoot, the Tuesday Writing / Critique Group, at the festival
- Daniel Galt has a Halloween-themed, spook-tac-u-lar new kids book as well as his earlier books and beautiful photography prints for sale
- New member Sara Winick Herrington is selling her just released book Bee Happy
- And others!
Our table will also offer free handouts about both writing and living your dreams that have been gathered from the best of our classes. AWA founding members will be staffing the booth all day and will be happy to answer any questions they can about the AWA, self-publishing, and writing in general. Katherine Cerulean will be giving free life-coaching sessions at the booth, and we’ll be having a free drawing for 15 pages of professional editing from Jonni Anderson. PLUS chocolate!
Come join in the fun! It’s also not too late to get your book added to our booth — contact Katherinecerulean@gmail.com if you’re interested.
